50th Anniversary

The 2015- 2016 season marks Hackney RFC’s 50th anniversary season. From its beginnings as an old boys team from Woodberry Downs school, Hackney RFC has evolved over the past 50 years into a vibrant, thriving London rugby community, with Juniors, Colts, Ladies and four senior Mens’ teams.

The Club has experienced the full gamut of highs and lows over its 50 year history, however it has been sustained through a half century by the unique, the indefatigable HACKNEY SPIRIT. Over the course of the next season we will be commemorating the Club’s half-century, and welcome all current members, ex-members and future members to help us celebrate this unique landmark.

Hackney Hall Of Fame

The Hackney RFC Hall Of Fame looks to recognise Club Members who have been outstanding in their contribution, service and commitment to Hackney RFC. Any current or ex-member can be nominated for entrance to the Hall Of Fame by any other current or ex-member. Nominations are then considered by the Hall Of Fame judging panel.

The first entrants will be announced at the Club’s 50th anniversary party (18th September 2015). Subsequent entrants will be announced at the end of Season party every year.
